“Reviewed By Mamta Madhavan for Readers’ Favorite

Dust Flowers: Tales from American Herstory Series by Lisa Gammon Olson is a beautiful story that revolves around the Dust Bowl era, which was one of the most trying times in American history. In this story, Molly asks her grandmother why she is crying and her grandmother replies that it is the dust in her eyes. Granny speaks about her mother’s flowers and as Molly looks around at the yard to visualize the beautiful garden, she cannot see past the piles of drifting dust. Molly knows that the rains stopped falling and the dust storms came. Molly is sad that her mother rarely smiles. As Molly stares at the dust below the porch, she sees a tiny sprig of green. She decides to water the plant and watch it till it blooms.

It is a story of hope, courage, and hard work and will bring a smile to the faces of young readers. The illustrations are colorful and vivid and they capture the Dust Bowl period nicely and captivate readers with the surprise Molly gives her mother. It is an adorable story for bedtime story-telling and can be used for read aloud and story-telling sessions in classrooms and school libraries. The author throws light on the difficult times of extreme heat, drought, and wind that caused great hardship for the farmers of the Great Plains in the early 1930s. I like the way the author has made history look interesting through the story of Molly and it is great historical fiction for school going children.”
